Turning the Other Cheek Matt. 5:38-48

By Jonathan Dodson

Call to Worship
Oh come, let us sing to the Lord;
let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation!

Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving;
let us sing to him with songs of praise!

For the Lord is great,
King above all gods.

In his hand are the depths of the earth;
the heights of the mountains are his also.

Come, let us worship and bow down;
let us kneel before the Lord, our Maker!

For he is our God,
and we are the people of his pasture.

Go, in the grace of God, who turns the other cheek,
standing for justice and dying for sinners.

Rest in the love of God, who hears your pleas
and heals your wounds.

Rejoice in the strength of God, who makes friends of enemies,
forgiving seventy times seven.

Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good. His love endures forever.
